Sometimes it takes someone who grew up under communism to see what's truly happening to this country right now. Paul Dragu (thenewamerican.com), Communications Director for the John Birch Society, grew up in communist Romania and recognizes many facets from the Communist Manifesto playing out in the U.S. today. He explains how the Deep State has gradually and intentionally infiltrated academia and other institutions to enact their agenda. But after years of ignoring the warning signs, people are beginning to wake up. He offers tips on how best to push back against this attempted takeover.
Is the United States going through a fundamental transformation? If so, what does that look like and what are the underlying factors? Joining us today is Dr. Alex Joffe (besacenter.org), Senior Non-Resident at the BESA Center, who examines how we are following in the footsteps of Europe toward the rabbit hole of Marxism. Those attempting to transform this country are using the moral panic of racism to justify pushing their agenda. Free speech and religion are for the first time in our country's history being seriously challenged. It's not popular which is why dissent to their methods is being shut down.
Radical leftists are trying to fundamentally transform our country. As a result, people are pushing back in several different ways. The first way can be found in turning the left's sanctuary status campaign back around on them. Joining us this week from the Oklahoma State House of Representatives are Speaker Charles McCall and Representative Jay Steagall. They discuss State House Bill 1236, which gives the state the power to review and if needed overrule executive orders from Washington DC that violate the Constitution. States are beginning to fight back by exercising their tenth amendment rights.
Another example of pushing back against the radicals can be seen in the state of Oregon right now. Michael McCarter (greateridaho.org), President of Move Oregon's Border, describes his group's initiative to transfer several eastern counties in Oregon into the state of Idaho, effectively moving the border between each state. There are several steps to make this happen, but the initiative is now on the May 2021 ballot in Oregon. There is a great frustration among many conservatives who are forced to live with terrible policies just because they reside inside a blue state's borders. We'll see if their effort to escape that will be successful.
Finally this week, John and Producer Steve sit down to look at some of the crazier ways that people are pushing back, including conspiracy theories and civil wars. A civil war is being waged in both political parties between the establishment types and those that want change. There are also conspiracy theories surrounding not only the January 6 incident at the Capitol, but also with vaccines. With so much misinformation flowing from politicians and the media, people are finding all sorts of ways to cope and push back against the radicals.
The United States has a new President and he gave a pretty standard speech at his inauguration. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve look at President Joe Biden's calls for unity and what that really means for America. Each ideological side has completely different visions for our country and completely different worldviews, making unity all but impossible. Will there be an allowance for “people to have room to disagree” like was mentioned in the speech? Or will platforms and internet service providers continue their assault on free speech? Interesting times are ahead. Stay tuned tomorrow for John's analysis of how we got here and how we move forward.
The takeover of this country is underway, but who are the players involved? Author and columnist Diana West (www.dianawest.net) is back with us, showing how the Marxist plan to destroy America goes back a century and the plan itself has been in plain sight the whole time. Many of the markers in moving this revolution forward have been reached already.
Diana discusses the Deep State actors who tried to take down President Trump and their ties to communism and socialism. She also looks at the pushback against Marxism that's being hampered by Big Tech censorship with an iron fist on the not-so-free flow of information.
